'Portlandia' taking applications for extras

Posted: Updated:

Producers of the Independent Film Channel's hit sitcom "Portlandia" are holding a casting call for extras as the show prepares to start shooting its second season.

Portland casting company Simon Max Hill is handling the applications, which asks those who are interested to submit their information and a picture electronically, via the company's website.

Casting agents are looking for all types of people who can be available at all hours of the day and at a moment's notice.

According to a statement on the site, extras will be paid $70 a day and should be prepared to devote the entire day on set.

Of the minimal restrictions listed on the site, extras would have to fill out IRS forms I-9 and W-4 before getting paid.

The show, which features Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, is shot in Portland and has been known to feature locals including Mayor Sam Adams.
